More about LeaderShape…
The program content of The LeaderShape® Institute (www.leadershape.org ) reflects key leadership issues of vision, partnerships, integrity, and results. In addition, all participants leave The Institute with a “LeaderShape Breakthrough Blueprint.” The LeaderShape Breakthrough Blueprint is a well-conceived vision and plan of action for the participants to implement back in their organization or community. Since 1986, there have been 30,000 participants graduate from sessions of The LeaderShape Institute. In fact, this year alone, there will be close to 3,500 participants who go through The LeaderShape Institute. The LeaderShape Institute will be conducted over 70 times this year, at over 65 different college campuses and organizations As well as being an opportunity to develop skills to improve their organizations, participants praise The LeaderShape Institute as a time of great introspection. The week is structured so that participants first gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their own strengths and weaknesses, ultimately enabling them to be more effective leaders in their organizations.
Past participants summarized the experience the following way:
“The Leadershape Institute opened my eyes to a network of individuals that provided me with opportunities of teamwork and cooperatives. The knowledge and friends I gained made Leadershape an unforgettable experience.”
“The Leadershape Institute gave me a unique opportunity to go outside of my box – in terms of meeting new people, learning about myself, and learning how to interact and act as a campus leader.”
“The LeaderShape Institute is a once in a lifetime opportunity to leave campus and share with like-minded students a week long complete immersion in leadership”
Specifics of the program include: a Team Challenge Course (a half-day outdoor team-building experience), an evening with a Guest Leader Forum in which participants are exposed to “real world” role models in education, business, industry, or other professions, quality facilitators from a variety of backgrounds, and learning and sharing in small groups.
